Are this the symptoms of prostate cancer?

My father is 60 and today he fell unconscious for a couple of seconds on the bathroom floor after he was nauseated. He s eyes were wide open and when my mother panicked and screamed...he came back to consciousness. This is the first time this has happened. Sometimes he sweats around the chin area and he looks like he is not all there. His eye look blurry and he looks very unhappy (almost depressed). Not known medical conditions except for frequent urination at night. He believes it could be prostate problems....possibly even prostate cancer . He has been exceptionally physically strong all this life and until recently he jogged on the street almost daily. He had a drinking problem 15 years ago but he has not had any alcohol since then. He doesn t smoke or do drugs. Like most men his age....he has a little bit of a belly brought by aging ....not by obesity . He is very stubborn and refuses to go to the doctor for fear that his company will lay him off. Plse suggest medical condition

i wish that i could tell you exactly what it is but nausea can be associated with a number of things. I suggest that tomorrow you call his primary and get a appointment for him. They may want to run test on him to get a proper dx. Good luck to you and your family

Hi. I am writing concerning a friend. He was diagnosed with an enlarged prostate some time ago. He now has chronic pain in his tail bone area, lower bak, and hips. He has been running a low grade emperture for a few weeks with some pain in his uper left shoulder area. He has been on several rounds of antibiotics including z-packs and nothing has helped. Are these signs of prostate cancer and if so, how advanced could it be? He refuses to have any real tests done.

I am a 29 year old male and for the past couple of weeks I've been having issues when I urinate and it's starting to worry me. I constantly have to push, or strain, in order to urinate. If I don't push when attempting to urinate then my urine just trickles out or doesn't come out at all plus it takes a really long time for me to start urinating and when I finally do start to urinate for some reason it will stop then go then stop again. Also it feels like I was not able to empty my bladder completely. I'm also suffering from the constant urge to urinate and urinary frequency. It feels like I always have the urge to urinate. I have to get up and urinate 3 or 4 times at night. My urine looks a little darker than normal, but it's not cloudy nor does it smell. It kinda burns when I urinate. It's like an odd feeling. When I urinate I feel this burning, tingling, pins and needles sensation. I don't know how to explain it. All of these urinary issues that I'm having is driving me crazy. I never had a bladder or urinary tract infection before. I passed kidney stones about a year ago and they were small. I was wondering what might be the cause of all these urinary problems. Why do I have to strain all the time and why do I have this constant urge to urinate? Do I have a a UTI or some other type of infection?
